. one thing they're doing here, there's all kinds of uncertainty about fiscal policy, about europe. the one thing we can be certain about is that ben bernanke is keeping his foot on the pedal right now. >> yeah, and john, when you compare what economists have forecasted when it comes to unemployment and what the fed is essentially forecasting. if you look at the officials and where they stand, 13 of the 19 officials say there won't be an increase likely until 2015, which would imply that the unemployment rate would remain above 6.5% for that amount of time. does that measure up with what wall street is forecasting? >> well, it measures up with what the fed is forecasting. i haven't looked at our own survey, which just came out. but the felt's fod's forecasts general little in lily in line street's. so, i think it does -- for me, one of the big questions is, all right, so, what happens once we get to that point? once we get to 6.5% unemployment, you know, the fed chairman said today that he thinks that the fed is likely to be able to move very gararadual to raise interest rates. of
